Hi!

I'm Melissa -- a freelance writer and social media maven with an appreciation of all things innovative, artful and well-designed. I went to school for journalism and public relations at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and graduated with a love for coffee shop culture and an affinity for office supplies. After UNC, I had the pleasure to attend the University of Southern California Annenberg school for Communication and Journalism where I received my masters in communication management. 

I enjoy bringing creativity, inspiration and stress-free social marketing to businesses everywhere. I'm a firm believer that branding should be all about fun and that style is whatever you decide to make it!

When I'm not documenting my love for design and style or searching for the perfect cup of tea, you can find me in our backyard gardening or playing with Billie, our sweet golden retriever.

I've created this space for me to share my work and interact with fellow creatives. If you'd like to say hello or contact me with any and all digital marketing or writing possibilities, I'd love to hear from you!
